Insider notes from Gators' Friday football scrimmage

Amidst all of the hullabaloo of an Elite 8 basketball team and a top 10 baseball team in action this weekend, the Florida Gators continued with spring practice and held their first padded scrimmage on Friday. We have some tidbits from that scrimmage that you won't find anywhere else.

The Florida offense is busy trying to step up and get out of the several year slump that has plagued that side of the ball.  The staff has made a concerted effort to improve the skill positions on offense.  There were a couple of young guys that really stepped up at receiver Friday and a veteran at running back that still is doing his thing. 

On defense, one particular defensive lineman made some more waves on Friday, a couple of linebackers lowered the boom a couple of times, and a couple of safeties did the same.
